I wanted to try something that can be done in an evening, and found it! Took only 2 and a half hours. This is acrylic wash and color pencil on board. I love the soft effect and the crisp lines.
The overall look of oils/all acrylic paintings was what I was hoping I could keep with, but they take me forever and frustrate me…honestly the reason I’ve been lacking in the art this year. I was never trained in painting. I studied illustration, so I’m gonna stick with my strengths and start doing what I love again.
Hope you guys like. (I’m wondering if I should add a background or is the plain wood nice?)

I’m starting a new series of paintings. I’m thinking a kind of “ghost in the machine” theme. Want to do simple robot girls (apparently my new obsession lol) with ghosted limbs; playing on the fact that there is someone in there that you cannot see.
Here’s the first sketch. Am finally feeling inspired, so hopefully more of these soon.

For artists looking for endless brush customization, say hello to Black Ink. It’s a fairly new digital painting program that is still in it’s Beta stage. It’s on sale for half price. If you buy it you get the final version free when it comes out.
Take a look at the vid. I was pretty impressed.

A new digital drawing program is out! And it is AMAZING! 61 Solutions, Inc has released Mischief, a vector based painting program. The coolest feature is an unlimited zoom, in or out, with no loss in detail. It is INSANE. It went on sale, half price today for only $65 for the full program. There are Mac and PC versions. Check out the 15 day free trial first.
I spent about an hour and a half playing around with it and came up with my own version of Wicked Lady from Sailor Moon. Granted, I am not a digital artist, tho I am hoping this program will push me in that direction (really that easy to use).
Try the program out and post a link to what you do with it. I’d love to see what people are doing since there isn’t much out yet. Have fun!
